This is the woman 
Who had all the answers 
The one I would lean on
For comfort, for strength 
She's never forgotten
One grandchild's birthday 
Now she can't remember my name
And it makes me so angry 
I shake my fist
And cry out to the heavenly one
Why would you play
Such a cold hearted trick
I thought your job was to love
And the answer came down from above 

She's gonna fly
When her time here is through  First she'll have to let go
Of some things she can't use
'Cause people and places  Memories and faces 
Are just way too heavy it seems 
To carry on angel's wings 

This is the woman 
Who saw things so clearly 
The one who could pick out
One crumb on the floor 
She saw through a white lie
Saw me through love's eyes
She hardly can see anymore 
And it makes me so sad
And it just isn't fair
Why should so much be taken away
But when I cry out
For all that she's lost
I silently hear someone say

She's gonna fly
When her time here is through  First she'll have to let go
Of some things she can't use
'Cause people and places  Memories and faces 
Are just way too heavy it seems 
To carry on angel's wings 

And oh, the wonders she'll see
And I know she'll remember 
To watch over me

She's gonna fly
When her time here is through  First she'll have to let go
Of some things she can't use
'Cause people and places  Memories and faces 
Are just way too heavy it seems 
To carry on angel's wings 

To carry on angel's wings
